Finish ― i.e. no rain, & often sun ― all day.
Rose at 6 ― & all through the day worked off & on at 3 small Corfus: Homer at intervals. Lady Goldsmid & Miss Jekyll came: that young lady is wonderfully interesting & pretty. ―
At 5. walked to Digby Wyatt’s & found Mrs. D.W. at home; who asked me to stay & dine ― but Digby did not come till 8. However, no end of talk with that delightful Mrs. D.W. made the hours short. It seems, Trelawney was at Fairbairn’s on Sunday ― at lunch! ― & that, had I gone to Digby W. to dine, I should have found said Trelawney dining there!!
To miss him twice in a day!
Passed a delightful evening: ― & came home at 11.30.
